Antony denies allegations he attacked ex-girlfriend

Manchester United winger has denied accusations of physical aggression towards his ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Calavllin, which have seen him axed from the Brazil squad.

The allegations were published by Brazilian website UOL, with Cavallin allegedly being the subject of physical assault.

However, Antony has since come to out to deny the accusations.

Antony took to Instagram last night to write: “Out of respect for my fans, friends and family, I feel obliged to speak out publicly about the false accusations I have been the victim of.

“From the beginning I have treated this matter with seriousness and respect, providing the necessary clarifications before the police authority. The police investigation is under judicial secrecy, and therefore I cannot make its contents public.

“However, I can calmly state that the accusations are false and that the evidence already produced and the other evidence that will be produced demonstrate that I am innocent of the accusations made.

“My relationship with Gabriela was tumultuous, with verbal insults from both sides, but I never committed any physical aggression.

“At each moment, whether in testimony or in an interview, she presents a different version of the accusations.

“Therefore, I come to vehemently deny the accusations made and inform you that I remain at the entire disposal of the Brazilian authorities to clarify whatever is necessary.

“I trust that the ongoing police investigations will demonstrate the truth about my innocence.”

The Greater Manchester Police have also stated that they are trying to establish the circumstances surrounding the report.

Furthermore, Manchester United have yet to comment on the situation, and it remains to be seen if they will drop him like Brazil.

Following the emergence of the allegations, Antony was withdrawn from the Brazil squad for their upcoming matches against Bolivia and Peru.

Antony was replaced in the Brazil squad by Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus.
